for removing that post? first, as we know, the diary of our fallen ambassador christopher stevens was uncovered at the site of the terrorist attack. according to cnn, he had concerns about his safety. this blatantly contradicts the state department's now deleted memo. since that discovery secretary of state hillary clinton has denied the concerns. remember this? >> there's one report suggesting that ambassador stevens that he was on a, quote, al-qaeda hit list. is this a scurrilous humor, gallous humor when one is workg in a period of great difficulty and challenge or is there something more to what he allegedly -- i stress that word -- said? >> as to your question, i have no information or reason to believe there's any basis for that. >> sean: despite the fact that our own ambassador e wrote it in his own diary, we're supposed to believe he never mentioned any of these concerns to his superiors, no emails, no diplomatic cables, nothing? secretary clinton also claims that the administration had no information to suggest that our assets in libya were ever at risk, but in light of the news that t
